Trump promised to introduce a monitoring system that would make it easy to remove illegal immigrants who overstay their visas. He also vowed to strengthen the existing e-verify system to make it so illegal immigrants cannot get access to welfare and other benefits.
Trump reiterated what he has been saying for more than a year: “Every time an African-American citizen, or any citizen, loses their job to an illegal immigrant, the rights of that American citizen have been violated. Equal protection under the law must include the consistent application of our immigration laws.”
Trump also repeated what he’s been saying for the past week — if elected he will immediately deport thousands of illegal immigrants with criminal records. He did not confirm or dismiss his recent comments about “working with the good illegal aliens” in making it so they can stay in the U.S. Earlier in the week on FOX NEWS, Trump said he would consider softening his position and letting them stay. A few days later he reverted back to saying there would be no legalization process for illegal aliens unless they the country and return legally.
Trump has cancelled two speeches about immigration he was supposed to deliver this past week.
